O hey.

It's been a while.

A long while.

What's been going on?

Well, let's see.

Stuffed shells and red beans and rice.
Naps and banana bread.
Birthdays, cupcakes, and Proper Pie.
Doughnuts + residency match day.
Long drives to Cherokee + snow in Cherokee + the casino in Cherokee.
Befriending really great students while in Cherokee (lots of WVU lovin').

Super moon in Hatteras.
NAPLEX and law exams. Yes. Plural.
Dill quickles + wine + family + British accents.

Props to you if you read that. There's probably like 15 different blog posts that could be written from that list. Who knows if I'll ever get to them.

Typing it all out makes me realize what a roller coaster I've been on since February. I got on . . . and JUST got off. Like last Wednesday.

I'm forever grateful for those that have been there. That have checked in on me. That have loved me and been true friends. That have prayed me through it all.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust -
